ERM solutions like IBM Content Manager OnDemand (CMOD) are responsible for storing massive amounts of archive content – typically report and/or statement data.
So yes, ERM can be considered an important component of an overall BI solution – for example, serving up historical sales report of customer statement content for a BI application such as Datawatch’s Monarch – which is a plug in report mining solution for CMOD.
